Whisky and St Andrew's Day :: Wednesday 30th November, 2016 :: Which whisky should I have on this Scottish special day?

Whisky and St Andrew's Day :: 30th November, 2016 :: Which whisky should I have on this special day?

St Andrews Day :: Wednesday 30th November, 2016

St Andrew's Day is an important day to all Scottish people home and abroad, and we should celebrate this day the same as Robert Burn’s Day where every January thousands of Scottish people toast the Bard. St Andrew's Day should be celebrated with a good whisky, bagpipes and traditional Scottish food.

St Andrew's Day falls on Wednesday 30 November, 2016 and sometimes you feel it is celebrated more out with Scotland than within its Scottish "Borders".

There are many whiskies that we all enjoy, but what whisky is right for you on Scotland's special day? Some people just like having the traditional whiskies like Bells or Famous Grouse as they toast Scotland’s patron saint which are both excellent, but I always feel a particular dram should be consumed on St Andrew's Day. Below is a list of drams for St Andrew's Day that could make your day even more special.

A collection of whisky for St Andrews Day - 30th November

Special whisky for St Andrew's Day 2016

Devil's Punch Bowl III is another excellent choice with its lovely flavours throughout.
